Starting to lose hope on fixing the defense this season...

This loss sits squarely on the secondary though....

Gilmore in particular....its too bad Rowe got hurt because it looks like Belichick had benched Gilmore to start the second half....that hands to the face penalty was the game killer

Gilmore just looks lost.....

I was surprised the Pats paid so much for him as my lasting impression of him as a Bills player was him getting toasted by Hogan last season and similarly looking "confused" on coverages....

Hate to say it but Belicheck got too cute with ranking players from the Pats farm system. Now the Pats are starting to play all Billsy.

Offense is still a force but yeah this defense needs some major adjustments. Carolina was down right terrible on offense two straight weeks before this game.

It is ****ing satisfying isn't it? So many players sucked with the Bills and went on to be great with the Patriots. And here comes Gilmore who was disappointing with the Bills, and it turns out he's still disappointing, and the Pats have guaranteed him $40 million.

(Clip I was about to post is too violent to post. It is the Johnny Mathis song "Wonderful, Wonderful" from the X-Files season five episode "Home." A simple google search will reveal why I cannot post it in this community.)

If you remember, Gilmore was bad in Buffalo too. He was targeted often, because he was always being burned. Buffalo made the right move in not resigning him and moving him.

I think Pats may should have kept Logan Ryan (not that he was excellent or anything) and paid Gilmore too much money. I'm really surprised Bill did that because Gilmore (while being an ok corner) tends to get burned consistently. At least Butler been pretty consistent over the last 2 years.

The most shocking thing was the fact that the Patriots gave out such a large contract to a free agent. A very un-Patriot thing to do.
